The challenge: outdoor space

We had to place the figures outdoors, specifically on the Boulevard Camilo José Cela in Las Rozas, Madrid.

The essential requirement, due to the climate, was that they had to be resistant to rain and wind. The latter is particularly strong in this place. 

II

Pet, the solution

It is a very resistant and flexible material with a very nice texture that responds very well to light, ideal for creating these figures.

This time we opted for Pet because it is a very versatile material to cover Truss and thus generate simple, light and economical decorations.

It is also a material with which we have extensive experience since we were pioneers in using it to build scenery.
